Nice job. Except your images are not showing. All I get is junk like this: [cid:image001.png@01D06BBE.33072950]
Is this something I can fix on my end?
Because the attachments (pictures) make the email too large (by ptc user standards), you will need to look at the post online.

And there they show up as attachments.
This old fart needs all the help he can get!!!!!
I'm seeing very few posts that are using the "reply with quote" function that is typical for most forums. That could be a cause of post threads not carrying the context forward.
Following the handy-dandy guide, I followed several forums. I just made a reply to one of the topics in modeling so I could test it out and see what the emails looked like. I'm still waiting for the email. I'm sure I didn't miss any steps from this guide and I've been getting emails from Ryan all along. Anyone else tried it yet with better results?

I wish they still carried the post thread within the email instead of just the most recent post.
Thanks, Scott R
Something we'll have to get changed. 🙂

David, I really love this tutorial and would love to edit and add it as a document within our Community Help group within PTC Community. You also had some some good reccomentations about adding screenshots to our available documentation on Following and Streams, which I've updated here:
Always happy to answer any and all questions about PTC Community within our Community Help group, especially now that we're approaching our migration date at the end of the month.
This was an interesting tutorial. Is there a way to set up a 1-email-a-day digest? I had my exploder set up that way. It was very efficient. I'd rather not get every e-mail in real time, then have to manage them individually. Even with e-mail filters, folders, and rules, it's still more time than I want to invest in it.
Hi Andrew, welcome to PTC Community!
Our system has something similar, but not as comprehensive, in the form of the Community Digest which you can set to receive once daily, twice a week, once a week, or never (disabling these emails).You can edit this setting within your Preferences page by selecting your avatar at the top of the page and then selecting "Preferences" from the resulting drop-down menu.
I mentioned that it's not as comprehensive because provides an overview of the most important content posted within the news cycle, but does not include every update from every person, place, and content you are Following. You may want to check it out and see if it's enough for you, but it's not a full replacement for the individual email updates you receive when you Follow a place within a stream or in your community Inbox and turn on email updates (read more about Streams and Email Notifications here). Unfortunately there is no setting that enables you to configure your email updates in the same way you did on the PTC/USER portal and I can see that it'd be very efficient when Following lots of content on the site.
